Fracking California's Farmland - Sunset Travel Magazine, & CapRadio
Tomas DiFiore
In one week, a quantity of water which could serve the yearly needs of 5,000 – 7,000 California families is pumped down into the ground, as steam. It comes back out with the oil, as produced water. As production falls off, steam injection is again applied, hence the term “Cyclic Steam Injection”. That means that in one year, in one oil field in California, the quantity of water used to steam the earth would serve 60,000 to 70,000 households (single family of four, 3 bedroom) including landscape needs. Compare this to the Sunset Magazine/CapRadio segment of the water used to frac in California as stated: 133 million gallons over two and a half years.
